  • We book your visit in the morning for the late afternoon, we three ... parents and 20-year-old daughter ... Prof. Mario Ice welcomes us (latecomers because Google Maps has badly directed) with great warmth and courtesy. The Museum is very interesting and the tour involves us for knowledge and passion with which our Cicero tells us of ancient times but already projected into the future. A visit not to be missed.

  • Tucked away in a small square at the center of Modica is this former Hospital now used as a museum. The visit is from book: a very nice gentleman and prepared will tell you about a piece of local history unknown to most people, but of great interest also for laymen. I would definitely recommend it to everyone. An hour of cultural immersion.

  • Very interesting, a unique museum that survives thanks to the enthusiasm of the volunteers of the Association.

  • Until the early decades of the twentieth century, in major railway nodes of the most important European climatic stations, large signs proclaiming: "Cafe le botti di Cabrera for lue". The County Borough was, in fact, a center of primary importance, one of a kind, for the cure of lue, better known as syphilis. Inestimable value is therefore guarded by the Museo Tommaso Campailla "" di Modica, returned to the city thanks to the efforts by the cultural association "IngegniCulturaModica". The Museum is housed in an ancient building of the 17th century. built to accommodate the first city hospital, the "Santa Maria della Pietà", later to become Sifilicomio Cabrera and finally Hospital Cabrera. Paramount Center for the treatment of syphilis until the 1940s, people flocked from all over the world to take advantage of valuable therapies. Following the discovery of penicillin and its use for the treatment of the disease, underwent a gradual decline until the final closure in the seventies of the last century. The route inside the structure runs along four exhibition halls: the room of "barrels", the doctor, the anatomical theatre and the Museum of medicine.
